Tired - time for a power nap
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Amazed--I felt my first true hunger pang this morning for the first time in YEARS. I'm talking true hunger here people. Not just an "I'm hungry" but my body really signaled me AND I hear it. Major ephiphany for us (me and my shadow).
Anyhoo, another word is scared. I'm co-hosting a brunch tomorrow with some really fabulous cooks. I don't want to undo any of the work I've already done. I'm just praying for strength and will power. If I don't eat anything, it will elicit tons o' questions and I don't want this lovely brunch to be overshadowed by dieting. I'm welcoming all prayers.

Mine is also determined! Today is an emotional day (the anniversary of my mom's death) and last night I wanted to eat everything in the house. Took a nap, chewed gum, drank 24 ozs. of water and was victorious over the urge to have an emotional eating binge. I can do this!!!

Determined! To finally stop the vicious yoyo dieting
Mine today is Encouraged. My husband and I just had our first training session with a personal trainer this past Thursday, and boy are we both sore, but we are continuing to go daily to work thru the stiffness and sore muscles that have not been used this way in a long time.
Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but doesn't get you anywhere.

BLAH!! Have no energy today. I did get a 30 minute run in this morning even though I didnt feel up to it. Normally a good work out would pick me/ my energy level up but not today. Not sure whats up!
Live every moment as if its your last! I never knew the meaning of love until I held my babies in my arms. I didnt know I could love with my heart outside of my body!!
Goal weight met! 10/25/2008 Ticker reset for 10 more pounds! Then I will enter maintence!
Hopeful. I have been doing very well this week and have lost 2.5 lbs. I have been exercising today and feel good, but am going out to eat tonight with a friend and I hope I have the willpower to order healthy. Wish me luck!
I think I can, I think I can!

Relaxed. I'm so at ease now that the hubby is stateside for a while, and we're getting back to "normal" life. Plus, I am excited about getting back on track, makes me feel better to know where I'm headed.

Content. I'd say that's my word. I've never really felt it this much before. I've learned so much and am controling my food better than I thought I could. I two pounds from my final goal, but don't feel any pressure to get there. I hit my main goal and am acutally pretty happy with myself.
If you don't love yourself....how can you expect others to.

I believe anything is possible - so decide, define and achieve!
Sorry to be so unoriginal, but I am sticking with fierce! I am participating in a fitness challenge at my gym and we had our first "boot camp" session this morning. All of the activities I was sure I would not be able to do, I did them, and I feel FABULOUS! Ok, maybe I will change my word to FABULOUS!!!
Motivated. I am working hard to work out and get in my water and eat better.

Great question! I would have to say "WORTHY" I am worthy of staying at goal and and living a healthy life through eating correctly and exercise. I think so many times we sabotage ourselves into thinking that we are not worth the effort. But we are. We need to learn that we are truly worth it. This is the only body we have and who better to take care of it and treat it like the jewel that it is.

Great topic! My word is optimistic - I've done sit-ups, push-ups, played with my puppy, and am hitting the gym before going out to enjoy the Seahawks game with my boyfriend and friends! Hope everyone has a great day!! :)
I am happy today, and this week, as I have just recently found about this site and just love it!

Congrats on staying away from your temptation!
Today my word would be content! I have maintained my eating plan all week - even though it was an incredibly stressful week (and I am an emotional eater)!
I am content and proud today!
Lord, every moment is in Your hands. I have ideas for my life and plans that I hope are fulfilled. Remind me today that every moment is precious and to live that moment as if it were my last. Life is unpredictable but You are not. Let Your love capture my every thought so my life reflects You, Amen.

"furiously eager or intense"
That's my new word for the day. Mentally, I am getting more and more committed to my weight-loss goals, including eating right, drinking more water, and excersing more. I found myself in a store yesterday where the owner was handing out fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate. I also heard myself saying "No thank you, I just brushed my teeth". Ok, so I lied, I had brushed my teeth acouple hours before. But I stood up for myself without disappointing the nice lady who offered my those sexy strawberries. I had to pinch myself! Did I, overweight mother of 5, just refuse a food of the gods?!?!
To top it off, the store owner thought maybe I just wasn't into strawberries and offered me a homemade chocolate peanut-butter cup. ARRRG! My Achilles Heel! I politely said "No thank you dear, maybe next time". Who said that?! HEY, I DID!
